Civic Addressing

Your civic address is the location of your property. A civic address is made up of three parts: a civic number, a full street name and the municipality.

You must have a civic address if your property:

  • Contains 1 or more dwellings
  • Has a phone line

You should have a civic address if your property:

  • Contains a building where people spend time (e.g. working in a barn)

It is optional to have a civic address if your property is a vacant piece of land.

Emergencies

We can't help you in an emergency if we can't find you. Know your civic address!

You must be able to tell a 9-1-1 operator or fire department the civic address of your location.

Example civic address:

1223 David Street West, County of Brant

Ensure Your Civic Number is Clearly Visible

It is your responsibility to make sure that people can see the civic address number on your property from the road while travelling in either direction.

  • In urban and hamlet areas the property owner is responsible for posting the civic number.
  • In rural areas a standard blue reflective sign is required. It is the owner's responsibility to maintain this sign.
  • Remove obstructions - trim back bushes, trees and weeds.

Civic Addressing Frequently Asked Questions

Do I need a civic address?

If you own a property which contains a dwelling(s), or has a phone line, you must have a civic address. If you own a property which contains a building in which people spend time (e.g. working in a barn) you should have a civic address. If you have a vacant piece of land a civic address is optional.

What is the difference between a civic address and a 9-1-1 number?

In the County of Brant your civic address is what you must provide to the 9-1-1 dispatch person in case of emergency. In essence they are one in the same thing; however this is not necessarily the case in other jurisdictions.

What is my postal code?

The County of Brant does not assign or manage postal codes. You can find out what the proper postal code is by contacting your local postal office.

What is my Rural Route?

The County of Brant does not assign or manage rural routes. To find out what the proper rural route is for a given property, you should contact Canada Post. 

How, when and where do I apply for a civic address?

If you would like a civic address because you are planning to build on a vacant parcel of land, you can get one through the building permit process.

Do I need a blue civic address sign?

As a general rule, rural properties require a blue sign and post and urban properties do not, although for hamlet areas it can be difficult to be sure. Looking around at neighbouring properties would provide a good indication, but you should contact county staff to be positive.

How much does a civic address cost?

If a blue sign and post are required there is a fee of $20.00 to cover the cost of materials.

How does it get installed?

It is the owner's responsibility to install the sign and post.
